Book Recommendation, Compassion International


I may be the last person in the free world to read this book, so it might not matter that I’m about to go hog-wild recommending it.

I’m only a few chapters into Radical: Taking Back Your Faith from the American Dream
and I can tell you it is HUGELY impacting and challenging me.

If you haven’t read it, you need to. And if you have, I would love to know how it has changed the way you live out your faith. Would you share with me and inspire us all? Feel free to leave it in the comments or email me directly…I would love to hear how this book affected you,

One other quick announcement is that I would love to ask for your prayer on behalf of the Compassion team that’s about to head out to Guatemala next week. It is an amazing team of people, including Lindsey Nobles, Lisa-Jo Baker, Amanda (Moore) Jones, and Ann Voskamp.

Taking into consideration that the spectacular Keely Scott will be behind the lens and Patricia Jones playing the role of “the mom you always wanted,” I’m halfway debating trying to hop on their flight and go myself. Oh, and Shaun Groves…I can’t tell you how highly I think of him-he is 150% involved in every aspect of it. Well, except for that one part where he forced me and Melissa to stay up and write despite *complications.* Amanda, feel free to put your foot down if he pulls this trick…

Will you all just take me with you? Shaun? Ann with no e? Amanda, my never-met-but-sure-to-be-bff? Keely? No? Was it the Canon?


Well, I guess I’ll have to watch this one from the sidelines and I so hope you all will join me in praying this team safely to Guatemala and into the purpose the Lord has for them there. It’s so hard to kiss the kids goodbye and jump on a plane, and I just know how much they are encouraged by all of our prayers. If I hear any specific prayer requests from them I will pass them along to you on here, but in the meantime please stop by their sites and get to know these faces who are a part of what Compassion is doing in Guatemala.

I want to go. Seriously.

Praying this team into a remarkable trip and asking the Lord to use them to bring many families into the Compassion fold. Jesus, give them favor, peace, and fervency as they go.

I’m proud of you all for stepping out of your comfort zones and I’ll continue to be in prayer for you.

Friends, will you join me in lifting them up? Thank you…
